Crock Pot Herbed Spaghetti Sauce

Amy Herald


I throw all this in the slow cooker and let it go a few hours and serve with any pasta I happen to have on hand! I've gotten to where this is about all I cook for pasta. Its so much better than any brand of jarred sauce out there and I would bet its better for you anyway! Gustare!
